"I conducted my own non-scientific tests on five different polymer clays commonly used by artisans and crafters. I was curious about sculpting qualities as well as the durability of cured clays. Here are the results I found. These were my own conclusions. You may get different results in your own tests." author unknown

In her own words: "Welcome to Diane Black's "encyclopedia" of information on polymer clay. Here you'll find over 90 categories (1500 pages) of information relating to all polymer techniques... plus lessons, supply sources, tools and problem solving (as well as polymer photography, business, teaching, finding inspiration, etc.) Each category contains many links to examples for illustration, and often to lessons as well. (In case you wonder, I named my site Glass Attic because after I'd stored such huge amounts of info up in my "attic," it seemed a shame to keep it all to myself ... I wanted others to be able to look into my attic too. My own photos, diagrams and even more lessons are to come.)"
